RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Whenever an app is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a certain server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful website hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you obtain one of the dedicated servers we offer, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks extensively along with the rest of the parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so if you buy one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality hosting server that'll ensure exceptional functionality for your sites. Even in case you do not use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended period of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
